Avatars in OLab4

Avatars have been a popular item with OLab3 authors for years. But while useful, they have had their limitations.

In our redesign of OLab4, we are now looking at the issue of avatar editors. There are many 3rd party options out there. Rather than reinvent the wheel, we think it would make more sense to have authors use these and then use the generated images.

What do you think of this approach? Have you found any particularly useful avatar editors or generators that you would recommend?
